HITCH UP THE TRAILER

Well, it's the latest thing for all of us modern, thrusting, 21st century authors. It's the thing you've just got to have, if you want to get noticed by the YouTube generation. Yes, folks, it's the book trailer.

Okay, so my movie making skills are, let's say... limited. But with the help of a bit of clever software courtesy of Bill Gates (thanks, Bill), I've had my first stab at a trailer. Nice pictures of the Peak District. Good soundtrack. And a big plug for the books. Do I get my Oscar now?

Flushed from my success in the director's chair, I'll be busy planning my storyboard for a new trailer to publicise THE KILL CALL in April. Meanwhile, let me know what you think:

  2. What a great trailer - but the effort is completely wasted on this reader because I love your Peak District series already :)
